DUBLIN, IRELAND (15th November 2021) – Craft Cocktails have released three new limited-edition cocktails for the festive season – the Yuletide Negroni, Gingerbread Punch and Festive Old Fashioned, available from Monday 22nd November.
The Yuletide Negroni is the ideal afternoon aperitivo, a Christmas twist on the Italian classic, with winter spices, rich red vermouth, Italian bitters and orchard fruits all stirred down over Tanqueray Gin. The Gingerbread Punch mixes Ketel One vodka, sloe gin and ruby port with cranberry, gingerbread spices and clementine for a cockle-warming seasonal punch. TheFestive Old Fashioned is a slow winter sipper for after the kids have gone to bed, made using Bulleit Bourbon and seasonal flavours of fig, caramel, orange spiced bitters and a dash of Grandma’s top tipple, PX sherry.
The new flavours join Craft Cocktails 12-strong range of premium Irish bottled cocktails, made by award-winning bartenders using only 100% natural ingredients: fresh fruit, handmade syrups, cordials, and infusions. Ready to serve straight from the bottle over ice, they are available in two sizes. The 200ml size (€12.50, serves 2) makes a great stocking filler, while the large 700ml size (€35, serves 7), is perfect for sharing. The brand’s popular ‘message on a bottle’ personalisation service also makes an excellent gift whether celebrating in person or remotely over the festive season. The message is designed, printed, and shipped on the cocktail of choice within a week on their core range.
